A promising new tool for forecasting volcanic hazards

3 Aug 2017, EOS

As volcanoes erupt they generate pyroclastic flows, which are fluidlike avalanches of hot gases, ash, and rock fragments racing down volcanic slopes. The flows have previously been hard to predict, but a forecasting model has now been developed. This model represents a major advance in the capability to predict ash cloud surges and their consequences.
